Eat Right, Exercise and Have Fun While on Vacation!
Spring break travels can sometimes be about burgers and beaches, while putting exercise on the back burner. These things can bust any resolution to lose weight and stay in shape. To avoid overeating and becoming unfit while on vacation this spring break, travelers can maintain their eating habits and workout routines with a few simple tips.
Wellness experts at Mannatech, a global developer of wellness and nutritional products, offer vacationers advice on staying healthy this spring break:
- Avoid 24/7 food and drink services – While all-inclusive resorts are convenient, many times they offer choices that can be tempting for individuals watching their food and drink intake. This also includes buffets and room service. Stick to your regular routine of eating three meals per day, or five to six small meals each day, without bingeing on snacks and giving in to late-night cravings.
- Enjoy an outdoor activity – Whether riding a bike near the beach, hiking in the mountains, taking a leisurely walk through a new neighborhood or swimming in the hotel pool – get moving! Try something new and help your body get into shape.
- Cook dinner with your friends – Eating healthy on vacation isn’t impossible. Try hosting a dinner night, which will ensure you control what’s on the menu. Cooking is a great form of entertaining and the perfect opportunity to try a new healthy recipe.
- Take advantage of the gym – Most hotels and resorts have a gym for guests to use. If you enjoy working out on the treadmill or elliptical trainer, or even if you lift weights, the gym will make you feel right at home. You won’t miss a single beat.
“Just because you are traveling during spring break doesn’t mean that you should let yourself go,” said Dr. Robert Sinnott, CEO and Chief Science Officer of Mannatech. “Certainly you should have fun and enjoy the treats that a week or so of vacation offers. But if you follow a few of the tips we suggest, you can have a great trip without setting back your fitness goals too far. Have fun, relax and try your best to stay on your wellness plan. It is not too hard to do if you put a little bit of effort into it.”
